Description: The Phoenix Tavern is situated in a splendid building with oak frame and beams. Originally a medieval hall house dating from about 1330. The hall was the main bar area and part of the jettied ends was in the Club Room. Though not visible from the ground floor, it has arched tie-beams and two large curved brackets to the posts forming a pointed arch, with a crown post, collar purlin and brackets at either end. The inglenook fireplaces would have been put in much later, in the 1600s, and would have given the residents a vastly improved lifestyle – free of smoke and with better cooking. Though additions have been made to the Building, it offers an historic, traditional feel. The Bar area is divided into 3 parts, The front bar, Back bar and Restaurant dinning area. There is also a Large garden and car park. Our kitchen is open all day for freshly prepared meals.

We called in for a nightcap after going for dinner at the Sportsman in Seasalter and on our way back to our Faversham hotel. We were probably a bit overdressed for the pub and felt the centre of unwelcome critical attention and obvious comment from the few regulars who were there. I know the publicans can’t help their clientele but we couldn’t wait to quickly finish our drinks and leave. Shame, because it looked to be one of the nicest pubs in the town. You need to make it a safer more welcoming place for visitors guys!

Haven’t been in here for years but will definitely come back soon as very friendly staff and a great atmosphere . Only had drinks and nibbles but it was so relaxed and we could have stayed all night .

Came here for an early evening Christmas meal for a group of 15 volunteer colleagues. Thank you to the staff of The Phoenix Tavern for a great meal with delicious hot food, generous portions and very attentive service. The price was extremely reasonable and our evening was so enjoyable. We had a room just off the main bar area so had a quieter environment to chat and relax. Overall impressions would recommend.
